RECIPE: Mexacali Casserole
Cinco De Mayo has passed, but the following recipe is still a crowd-pleaser.

INGREDIENTS:  

1 medium package of sturdy tortilla chips  
1 1/2 cups chunky Mexican salsa  
1/2 cup green or red pepper combination, chopped  
1 cup cooked beef or chicken  
12 California-style black olives, sliced  
1 cup Monterey Jack, shredded  
2 cups Cheddar, shredded  
1 cup sour cream  

DIRECTIONS:  

Preheat oven to 325 degrees, and grease a shallow 10-inch casserole. Layer casserole with half the chips and salsa.  Top with peppers and meat, plus half of both cheeses.  Repeat using remaining chips, salsa, and cheeses. Top with sour cream. Bake for 30 minutes. Let stand for another 10 minutes before serving.  

Yield: Six Servings
